Hyypia in no rush to appoint No.2

The Argus: Sami Hyypia has been impressed by Nathan Jones Sami Hyypia has been impressed by Nathan Jones

Sami Hyypia insists he is not in a hurry to bring in a No.2.

The new Seagulls boss has even hinted he may not appoint a new assistant at all.

Former Liverpool colleague Sammy Lee initially accepted an invitation to be Hyypia’s No.2 before changing his mind and joining Southampton.

Nathan Jones was assistant head coach to previous manager Oscar Garcia before taking on the role of first team coach to Hyypia.

The Welshman was alongside the new manager in the technical area at Lewes on Saturday as Albion launched their pre-season with a 5-0 win.

The preparations continue in Spain, where Albion fly to today ahead of games against Partick Thistle on Saturday and Real Betis next Thursday.

Hyypia is happy with what he has seen so far of Jones and will hold fire before deciding whether he needs extra support.

He said: “I’m looking into the situation and seeing what is the right thing to do. I’m not desperate to bring anybody at the moment.

“Nathan has done a good job and I think I can build a good relationship with Nathan as a partnership. We will see if we need anyone.

“That will be a decision I will need to think hard about. I won’t bring somebody for the sake of it.”

Makes sense. Appointing now would label the new man as a third choice. Waiting a while means SH can say he's more aware of what's required and has appointed for a specific, rather than general purpose.
I.e. any new man is not seen as a direct replacement for Lee.

If Nathan continues to do a good job, I see no reason why he wouldn't be a good candidate. As long as his appointment is for the right reasons and not to save FFP money. I'm sure Sami will do what is right for him. UTA

I think that Nathan Jones is a Very valuable asset to the Albion & was so pleased to see that he has stayed.In my opinion as long as The Manager & Nathan can work well with each other there should be no need to introduce any-body else,There is such a thing as too many cooks!

Right now it's all about priorities and the number one priority, IMHO, is finding and signing the right players to rebuild the squad. Hyypia has enough work to do without having to spend time worrying about who his assistant might be, and as you say, he has Jones.

Yep, despite the myopic view of some on here, perhaps SH is comfortable with Jones as a sidekick and so has moved his short-term priorities.
Lee's late change of heart could work in our favour in the long run.

Tinker, Either get behind him or go and support someone else, don't bother renewing your season ticket, we don't need "dead leg" fans taking up seats genuine fans would want.

I go along with anything TB does including Barber. I would rather that than Archer, Fernandez and all other non football scum owning clubs, look at Leeds, Forest, Reading(to be), QPR, Pomey etc etc!
